Hi Guys, my wife recently started doing UberEATS with an electric bike as she only has her G1 license. We bought a car last week and we wanted to add it to her UberEATS account. She is a Canadian PR but only has her G1 while I am waiting on on a response from CIC regarding our sponsorship...
So with the re-opening entering Stage 2 today, will it be a busy weekend?
Have at it, boys & girls.
I am out of the Ridehail game for this weekend, even with the shitty weather, I am going to take a 5 day break from driving and catching up on my reading and lager consumption.
As you may have seen, there is no more moderator badge next to my name.
While I cannot exactly comment on why that is, you'll still see me commenting and whatnot as a regular (ahem PREMIUM) Up.Net member
Be nice to @Weekend Warrior who has to do all the work keeping the place sane & tidy going...
Proud partner of the Téléthon Opération Enfant Soleil
From today through May 30, every dollar tipped to drivers on the Uber platform will be matched by Uber as a donation to Opération Enfant Soleil (up to $100,000). This money will benefit sick children and their families. If you’re planning...
So I was 17 points from Platinum Status this morning, so I turned the UBER App on after noon, looking to get 6 short rides at 3 points a piece -- to lock in Platinum until the end of January 2021.
Got a couple short rides while I did my Sunday errands.
Eventually, I got a ride to Pearson...
Yesterday I was at my local Sobeys and for the first time since it opened, the store manager, whom I know reasonably well, refused to give me the item free (up to $10) when it scanned in WRONG. I was told that the Scanning Code of Practice was over (possibly a COVID-19 thing? Maybe not.) Since...
It's been about 2 weeks since the gov'ts contact tracing app has launched for use by the wide public. Estimates put things around 5% uptake Country wide, however the App only actually works in Ontario at the moment, so the update might be higher if the bulk of downloads are only in the region...
Mississauga, Ontario, Canada.
Sunday Night. 8pm.
36 degrees Celcius. Humid as Hell on bad hair day.
I get a ping to a Hotel on Winston Churchill Boulevard @ QEW Highway.
Pax Name: "Amber."
I arrive at Hotel, main lobby round-about, which looks completely vacant and sad, and click the pink...
Mississauga, Ontario, Canada. Sunday Night. 8pm.
Get a ping to a Hotel on Winston Churchill Boulevard @ QEW Highway.
Pax Name: "Amber."
I arrive at Hotel, main lobby round-about, which looks completely vacant and sad, and click the pink "ARRIVE" button on the LYFT App.
Yes, it is felonious ASSAULT to spit on someone in the middle of a health crisis.
Today was my son's birthday. He was born in a hospital just outside the City of Toronto on March 31, 2003. This was the first day where hospitals in Toronto, and the surrounding area, initiated isolation and tracing protocols for a deadly corona virus that caused acute respiratory distress...
Congrats guys, for making the new Vancouver Sub-Forum so lively and rich in information, as you get the hang of this ride-hail thing in your city.
Because there was not much activity in the Calgary and Edmonton sub-forums, they have been merged into one Western Canada Subforum. This one, right...
Niagara, Waterloo, Ottawa, and Hamilton have all been put into a single SUB-Forum going forward called: "TORONTO (Ontario)"
This was due to relatively low activity in all the other forums, and it only makes sense to have everyone in on the conversation in ONTARIO (well, SOUTHERN...
As of 11am this morning, PST, Uber is available to people in Vancouver. After almost a decade of not being on any serious Ridehail platform, the City has opened up a fair bit of territory to drive for Uber and Lyft, if you manage to jump through all the extra hoops and fees the've imposed...
We got a piddly little 15-20cm. Most of St. John's got 76cm in the same time period.
It was a Blizzard inside a Hurricane.
I wonder what the SURGE looked like.
Toronto, as usual, has it really easy compared to the rest of the country.
This is INSANE...
